Montini Preserve seeks volunteers
Whether an accomplished outdoor enthusiast, or someone who prefers a gentle stroll through the woods, Valley residents are invited to join the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District’s Montini Open Space Preserve Volunteer Patrol.
This is an opportunity to spend some time outdoors and learn about the open space lands that have been preserved by the district while helping to take care of the valuable and unique Montini Open Space Preserve.
The Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District and the Sonoma Ecology Center will hold Volunteer Patrol training at the Montini Open Space Preserve on Saturday, Feb. 2, from 10 a.m. to noon. Volunteer duties include hiking the preserve, monitoring, and reporting conditions of the property on a monthly basis. New and returning volunteers are welcome to join.
“The Montini Volunteer Patrol provides a unique opportunity for members of the community to access the incredible Montini Open Space Preserve,” said Cassandra Liu, restoration project manager at the Sonoma Ecology Center. “Volunteer patrollers are the eyes and ears of the preserve, protecting this picturesque property.”
Currently in its sixth year of operation, the Volunteer Patrol is part of the district’s management program for the preserve. Members of the Volunteer Patrol must be at least 18 years old, attend a Volunteer Patrol training session, and be able to patrol at least once a month.
